Dear Glenn,   

I moved 1000 miles to take care of my aging father and got a new job. The company paid to move me and things went well at first. Two months later, things are not good.

     I’m frustrated and seriously concerned for my future. The boss even told me she would accept my resignation. I put my resume back out there but am concerned about the cost of moving that the company incurred, and that they are still storing my items in their warehouse while I'm trying to find a new home. I would love some advice.

Dear Tammy,

Your situation is more common than you probably realize. Both the employee and employer incur expenses when someone relocates, but it’s water under the bridge now. Rent a storage facility and move your possessions to eliminate that stressor while you decide what to do next.

      Then focus on finding a job that’s a better fit. Both you and your soon-to-be-former employer will be better off. If things change and you decide to stay at your present job, you can still buy a house and move your things in then.

     Thanks for your question.

For those who question how much fathers matter, the answer was revealed in Super Bowl XLVIII.

 

If anyone ever had the right to feel like an underdog who didn’t get the respect they deserved, it was 25-year-old Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

 

Up until game time, all anyone could talk about was how Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos had shattered all kinds of records in a historic season.

 

While I’m a Peyton fan, I empathize with Russell, who must have grown tired of being compared to Peyton. It was like "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" from The Brady Bunch.

 

Peyton was a #1 draft pick out of college, Russell was a #75 pick.

 

Peyton is 6’5”, while Russell was told he was too small for the NFL.

 

This was Peyton’s 16th year in the NFL, but was only Russell’s 2nd.

 

Peyton came from a family of football royalty (father Archie played for the Saints and brother Eli plays for the Giants). Russell’s father Harrison Wilson died in 2010 when Russell was still in college.

 

But Harrison Wilson gave Russell the greatest gift a parent can give. He taught his son to believe in himself - even when others didn’t.

 

He always asked Russell, “Why not you?”

 

At the beginning of the 2013 season, Russell asked his teammates, “Why not us?”

 

They resoundingly answered his question on February 2, 2014 with a 43 - 8 blowout in front of the largest TV audience ever.

 

While I haven’t asked Russell, I'm guessing he heard his dad’s voice all throughout the game.

 

If Father of the Year awards can be given posthumously, Harrison Wilson should win this year.

 

 

 

To Your Success,

Glenn Shepard

 

 

 

 

P.S. Russell Wilson wasn’t the only Seahawk to prove the incredible power of the human spirit. Fullback Derrick Coleman, the first deaf person to play in a Super Bowl, said, “They said I was a lost cause, gave up on me, and told me I should quit. But I’ve been deaf since I was three, so I didn’t listen”. (Click here to see Derrick’s VERY moving commercial)
